Wake up deadheads. It's almost June, which means we're coming up on the 30th anniversary of that great run of shows in June 1976 - the triumphant return of the Dead to the road, and to your mind :-). The Dr.'s favorites -

6/9/76 - only set 2 circulates in SBD, but how can you not be blown away by a set that starts with St. Stephen>Eyes>Let it Grow??

6/14/76 - From the first show on 6/3, the band was now getting the groove back and up to speed. The PLayin is space-jazz sublime, the Crazy Fingers inspired, and from the
hot Dancin thru the Help>Slipknot spectacular, you'll barely catch your breath. Heavy show.

6/19/76 - an old favorite. The playing is really on and vibrant tonight. Near-perfect versions of everything. The show begins with Help>Slipknot, what else can I say??

6/29/76 - a show loaded with rarities - and magical jamming.
A Tenn Jed opener?? How about a Mission in the Rain?? But it's the double decker sandwiches in Set Two that put this
show over the top. Playin>Wheel>Playin - is just mind boggling. And then - St. Stephen>NFA>St. Stephen!! Can you
take any more? NO.

Celebrate the June 76 revival, crank 'em up and start
dancin. Share these shows with friends (torrent, B&P)
cheers,
Dr. Flashback

Preach it Dr.!!! Here here on 1976's brilliance.

I long ago fell for this sadly overlooked year.
When he wasn't busy playing some of the greatest JGB shows of his career Jerry was squeezing sweet tones out of his white Travis Bean guitar with the old band.

What some call slow I consider regal,majestic and this year truly does have a distinct sound of its own.

With the introduction of wonderful new material from 'Blues for Allah', Garcia's 'Reflections' and Weir's new offerings (Cassidy, Lazy Lightning>Suplication) as well as the revival of old chestnuts like St. Stephen, High Time, Dancin' in the Streets, The first tours post 'retirement' in smaller music halls must have been a thirsty Heads paradise.

If you haven't yet experienced '76 do take the doctors advice and take advantage of the 30 years aniversary.

For many years i have listened to an FM recording of New Years at the Cowpalace. Wonderful jams in Wharf Rat, Scarlet and Help>slip>drums (w/o the Franklin's). The nifty transition between the 2 1/2 min. Good Lovin' > 12 min. Samson is truly remarkable.
Thanks for the suggestions for the rest of 76.

Props midnight on mentioning NYE 76. One of the better NYE shows in my opinion.A great Playin'and as you mentioned a funky jam between Good Lovin' and Samson.

Of course this should come as little surprise as it was actualy the first show of '77 as well, and we all know about THAT year! : )

Right on,1976! Was listening yesterday to 7/18/76,and the 2nd set especially is just awesome cosmic music.
Jerry's guitar sound in the jams is just..what's the word?..Liquid. Like melted iron would sound..
Over-exagerating? Go on and take a closer look yourselves.
You won't be disappointed..
Peace out..D
